The idea behind Viral Conversations is putting business owners who have a product or service, in touch with bloggers who are interested in reviewing it. The difference between this website and other website review services is Viral Conversations only deals with real world tangible products.

I wish there was more room in the description of the topic here, but I hope what’s there is enough to let Sphinn users see the point of this. I’m excited to be seeing a movement like this, particularly because I’ve seen a lot of good blogs (and bloggers) ruined by paid links and product pushes. This won’t stop that, but it introduces an entirely different approach.The fact that bloggers aren’t required to link to the merchant’s sites is pretty cool. It puts the focus back on the product and benefits than it does the manipulation of search.

Wow what a killer idea.  Done ethically, of course... killer idea, Michael.Not only does this help to position bloggers as real journalists, but it provides an answer to small businesses who have trouble, after a certain point, getting more valuable links with white hat methods.

Funny, now I read this comment "Sumolounge Sumolounge is now a PR 0 homepage because they sent their products to known bloggers who promoted the product. The problem was caused when SUMOlounge blogged about the fact this “practice was good for SEO”." - from Dave Naylor’s case study at SMX London- http://seogadget.co.uk/seo-for-web-20-session-smx-london-day-2-recap/ umm so is Google going to sanction this if businesses disclose the exchange of goods etc.?

@bbcarter we don’t require that bloggers link to merchant, and they are free to use nofollow or any other google aproved method they choose to link to the merchant. we tell merchants to not expect a link. we also very strongly reccomend that bloggers disclose what is going on.We’re not the government and we don’t think it’s our place to tell you how you have to run your business or your website :-)

awesome idea. have stayed away from the other pay per post type services because the quality of the posts were poor. ’so and so site is the best insert keyword here site ever. i used keyword all the time.’ will be interesting to see the quality of these posts.

This can potentially be a great service to both producers as well as bloggers, laying more emphasis on the increased importance of blogging as a marketing tool.

interesting but we’ll have to wait and see what the quality of the blogs will be. I can already get reviews on any joe six-pack’s blog.
